Musician Esther Akoth, alias Akothee tied the knot in a colorful wedding on Monday at the Windsor Golf Hotel in Nairobi.
The wedding saw the attendance of some of the biggest names in Kenyan politics, entertainment and media.
Among those in attendance were Cabinet Secretary Aisha Jumwa, Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o and his wife Dorothy, MP Millie Odhiambo and Nominated Senator Karen Nyamu.
Others are singer Bahati and wife Diana, comedian Terence Creative and his wife Milly, media personalities Lillian Muli, Lofty Matambo, as well as Wilbroda.
Alex Mwakideu, Chris Da Bass, Lang’ata MP Phelix ‘Jalang’o’ Odiwuor, celebrity couple Kabi and Milly Wa Jesus and Billy Miya were also in attendance.
Jalang’o had a role to play during musician Akothee’s wedding.
In a video that has circulated online, he was seen driving Akothee to her wedding venue, as they were jamming to popular Luo Artiste, Prince Indah’s Linda song.
“Inyuomo Akothee, driver en Heavy J, Jalas” Akothee was heard shouting as she danced in a
convertible car. This is loosely translated to; Akothee getting married, and the driver is Heavy J Jalas.
The singer walked down the aisle with her parents by her side as she headed to say Yes to the love of her life, Dennis ‘Omosh’ Schweizer.
Dr Ofweneke was the MC of the day.

On March 31, Akothee returned from Europe the other day where she had gone to buy her wedding gown.
She said she paid for an extra plane ticket for her gown to fly business class, adding that the gown was a gift to herself.
“The gown cost me about Ksh 700,000 to purchase in one of the best places in the world,” she said.
Akothee also dismissed claims that her wedding is fake, saying she does not need to chase clout to make money.
“I made money a long time ago. I am living my original life. If I can buy a V8, a chopper for myself, why can’t I buy myself an expensive gown? That is peanut money,” she said.
She also told off her haters who asked her why her man could not buy her the gown.
